connecting the world one person at a time
My mothers name is Nyla,
In 2009 when I was 8 1/2 months pregnant she was on the losing end of a bus vs van collision. She broke most of the bones in her face as well as suffering many other injuries, including a couple of strokes while she was in her coma.
She. Is. Difficult. I mean sure she was a pain in the neck before the accident but now she is almost without the ability to empathize and see any other point of view than her own.
As difficult as she can be, she still has all her faculties and I think she can live independently . I wouldn't wish her pain on anyone, she has constant ice pic head pains that are so forceful she falls down, also she is losing all her teeth, and as someone who got by on large part do to the fact that she was beautiful this is especially hard for her to go through and for me to watch.
She has lived with me and my husband and two young children. She has lived with my sister and her boyfriend. She has lived in low income ( which she still couldnt afford on only 700 per month) apartments and also section 8 apartments. She was kicked out of her section 8 housing because she kept smoking in her unit and I believe having problems with other tenants, I never got the whole story there.
Most recently she was asked to leave by my sister...... I have mixed feelings about this..... I am going to go pick her up in a couple days and she is going to stay with me at least while my husband is working out of town. However living with me isnt an option right now.
I need help. I need resources to reach out to. My mom needs and deserves a home.... If anyone here has any recommendations please, please, please....... I dont know where to start or what avenues to explore.....
that is tough
